10 Years of Everyday Adventures

"I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees."  Henry David Thoreau

This year in August marked 10 years of being married to my best buddy. We decided to take it simple and do a much needed getaway into the mountains with no cell service and no wifi. Glorious! 

I just read a quote that said "don't live the same year 75 times and call it a life." Life in itself should be an adventure, and I am so thankful I get to live it with my best bud.

Seeing this little family grow over the years has been fun to watch. We first met their mama before she met their daddy, then they fell in love, got married, and started their family. 

It's been great to be able to document each addition, and this one was special too, not because it was anything grand, but because it was THEM and simply a normal evening as a family. To me, that's beautiful. 

Check out the session highlights below! 

New babies are fun, and milestones are great! But you know what else is great? A normal evening at home, with family and friends is also beautiful and worth being remembered!

A Year with Marleigh - SC Family Storytelling Photography

"Children speak the language of the flowers and hear the whispers of the wind." -Cristen Rogers

I have had the privilege of knowing this sweet family for almost 10 years now! They were some of the first people we met when we moved into our new town 10 years ago, and while we've both moved away and then both moved back, our friendship has remained the same. You know when you can pick back up right where you left off that it's a good friendship! 

A year ago, they welcomed their sweet newbie Marleigh into the family... and this past week she turned ONE! It's been so fun to see her grow, but also to be able to document their lives as their family grew and changed over the course of the year... check out the images below and then click on over to see her other sessions! 

Check out the rest of Marleigh and her sweet family's sessions from when she was a newbie and then 6 months later... 

Documenting a year in your family's life is a beautiful way to capture the real YOU... contact me today so we can chat some more about it! 

Our Everyday Adventures: Myrtle Beach, SC

"Childhood is so brief and yet so open and formative that we must not neglect our responsibility to furnish it with what we know is good." -Gladys Hunt

On our last family adventure we went a little bit wild and surprised the boys with a trip to Myrtle Beach. Now, if you know us, we're not the beach type... DEFINITELY not the mass crowds of a dirty, crazy beach... BUT. That was part of The Hubs' childhood and he wanted to give a little piece of it to the boys... So we found a fun family campground on the beach, and it wasn't at all like the "Myrtle Beach" we thought it would be... it was relatively calm on the beaches near us. 

We went into town a couple of days just to see what it was like... so many people! We just kept repeating "this is for the boys, this is for the boys" as stress got more and more high. It was definitely fun, but we've found out we're more of the "road less traveled" type of people and campers... but at least we can say we've check this one off the list!
